Should Michael Vick Return To The NFL?

The Barbershop guys from NPR's Tell Me More make an interesting arguement (www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=106968834) but what do you guys think?

NO!! The last thing we need is kids & even adults admiring him & wanting to be like him. He's never shown any remorse for what he did. Everything he has said & done has been orchestrated to get him back to the NFL. He should still be in prison, but he's not, so yes, he has a right to earn a living. But that doesn't mean he has a right to be earning millions in the NFL. He can get a nice blue collar job & earn his living.

No!!! This is an opportunity to send the message loud and clear that animal cruelty is a crime. If Michael Vick needs a job, I suggest he get one shoveling poo and doing dirty laundry at a shelter.

No way....in fact, he should still be in prison as far as I'm concerned. Why would anyone want their kids to look up to this guy as an NFL star?

No. He should not return to the NFL. As far as I am concerned he is a felon. I don't want young people admiring felons. The NFL should start to CHANGE their policies also. It is a privilege and an honor to play in the NFL. This SOCIETY needs to stop glorifying these felons. There are many other young men who would be proud to play in the NFL. I will never watch or go to football games if this felon returns. There are many other players that need a rude-awakening also and It is not just football players either.

No. I dont even think he should be out of jail. He is a disgrace to football and the fact that he only got 2 years is appalling. Its ridiculous that people with money can get away with murdering poor animals. His fans looked up to him and he let them down. The fact that he has no remorse is reason enough to keep him in jail. Our society is messed up if they let him back into football.

ABSOFREAKINLUTELY NOT!!!! He has not showed any remorse whatsoever for his actions. All he did was his time...He has not shown the least bit of compassion or sympathy for what those dogs endured! He makes me sick! And, I am being kind!

I do not believe he should be able to play again. As an NFL player he was supposed to set an example for his fans, one that didn't include the cruelty of dog fighting. Actions have consequences, and I think he should have to face his, famous or not.

No, I do not believe he should be allowed to play. Not only because what he did is cruel and he did not serve nearly enough time, but I also feel that as an NFL player he has an obligation to serve as a role model to those who looked up to him. I would argue that he did not do the job he was payed to do and in the real world you get fired for that. One of the speakers on the radio program said that there are others who have committed serious crimes and were allowed to continue playing. This is true, but that doesn't mean it was right and it is not right that MIchael Vick play again. It is time that the people who are supposed to serve as role models be held to some standards. They make a lot of money for what they do and I think the job goes much further than what happens on the playing field. Does this mean they are not allowed to make mistakes. NO, but this was not an isolated mistake; he knew what he was doing; He knew it was wrong. He lied about it. And he has shown no remorse.
